Obviously this has been a burning question ever since our first session - we deal with it once and for all:) We hear about the police questioning an entire town in the North Island about some missing war medals The recent result in the Aussie Elections also gets a wee mention - And finally Dodge manages to turn it all around and force Shifty into a discussion on the environment:) Wouldn't be a proper session otherwise right? Some links to the stuff we mentioned: That blog about the English family who we failed to catch up with can be foun

Shifty Rob's 'New' laptop doesn't seem to be able to record a session without adding its 'own' sound effects... mikes cut in and out, were on different volume levels and generally acted like a complate pain in the arse...This is simply an explaination - not an apology.
